Storing longan in the refrigerator is a common practice for many individuals, although not everyone knows the proper method to ensure its freshness for an extended period. In this article, we will provide guidance on selecting delicious longan and offer tips on how to store longan in the refrigerator to enjoy throughout the year.

Choosing Delicious Longan

When purchasing longan, it is important to keep the following points in mind to ensure freshness:

  • Choose fresh, natural longan.
  • Avoid buying young or overripe longan.
  • Select longan that is intact with no blemishes, scratches, cracks, or uneven coloring.
  • Choose longan with a light and sweet aroma.

Proper Refrigerator Storage

Longan can remain fresh for 3-7 days at room temperature. To prolong its freshness, it is advisable to store it in the refrigerator.

Storing in the Refrigerator Compartment

  • Rinse the purchased longan with water.
  • Using scissors, cut the longan from the branch (close to the fruit knob), and allow it to drain.
  • Discard any damaged, cracked, or overripe fruit. Place the longan in a mesh food bag or plastic bag, taking care to poke a few holes. It is recommended to divide the longan into separate bags.
  • Gradually preserve the longan in the refrigerator. Store the longan in a separate tray or compartment, avoiding storage with other foods, particularly fresh items, which can cause quicker deterioration.

When stored in the refrigerator, longan can remain fresh for 2-3 weeks.

Storing in the Freezer Compartment of the Refrigerator

If you desire to enjoy longan throughout the year, you can utilize the following method to freeze the fruit:

  • Wash and drain the purchased longan.
  • Use a knife to separate the longan flesh and place it in a sealed plastic container or a resealable food bag. Store it in the freezer compartment of the refrigerator.
  • You may also preserve the longan pulp and seeds (after peeling them) in the freezer.
  • When you wish to consume or use the longan, simply defrost it.

However, storing longan in the freezer may cause the fruit to become watery and soft after defrosting. This method is often preferred when using longan pulp for making smoothies, cakes, or other desserts.

Considerations for Consuming Longan

Refrain from consuming excessive amounts of longan at once to avoid overheating the body, internal heat, and acne formation.

Longan has a relatively high sugar content, with 300g of longan equivalent to 1.5 bowls of rice. Therefore, excessive consumption of longan can lead to increased sugar levels in the body and subsequent weight gain.

Individuals with diabetes should avoid or limit their intake of longan.

Pregnant women with weak health, experiencing body heat, constipation, or a bitter taste in the mouth are advised to avoid consuming longan, as it may be detrimental to both maternal and fetal health.
